    I think most horses at least know that they've done something good or right.
    I gently pat/stroke my horse and praise her verbally when she does good on the ground, and I do the same when riding her. I use my voice, stroke/rub her withers, and relase pressure as rewards when we are working, sometimes all three at once. Works for us!

    I always verbally praise my horse when she is giving me her best when we are trying a movement or something, I don't usually pat her or rub her, but she jst melts and relaxes and trys 3x harder when I praise her in a nice voice, haha if I wanted to I could say "your such a stupid horse" but as long as its in a nice soft voice it is reconized as a praise :P I usually say good girl though haha
